    This is just a gut-wrenching poem Michael. So simple, so clean – a complete contrast to the mess which B.P. have gotten us in to. I like this in the sense that there is a juxtaposition inside the poem, but also a juxtaposition of the poem with the oil spill. Many thanks for the fine contribution!

    I agree! The minimalism of this poem is stellar and really illuminates the bleakness of this situation. Well done!
